Thanks to all who attended the #DenbighshireVolunteers Third Sector Network on 5th September.
The aim of this Network is to proactively lead on and facilitate initiatives to improve the involvement of volunteers in Denbighshire. The group focuses on a number of key areas such as increasing the pool of volunteers, establishing good practice in relation to volunteer involvement and raising the profile of volunteering and the third sector among key stakeholders.
Membership of the Network is open to representatives of Third Sector organisations in Denbighshire and volunteers from these organisations, including but not limited to DVSC members. The network is open to all third sector organisations, social enterprises and community groups operating in Denbighshire.
During the meeting we gave a briefing on a new community led programme facilitated by DVSC on helping communities to become Dementia Friendly, which DVSC is currently awaiting final approval from the Welsh Government. We also gave an update on Youth Volunteering and the new digital platform and attendees shared information about their current programmes and activities.
As the membership body for the third sector in Denbighshire, and the leadership body promoting voluntary action and social enterprise in Denbighshire, we very much welcome your views and opinions on key issues.
We would love to increase the number of participants attending this Network, so join us and become part of a movement for change in Denbighshire.
If you have agenda items that you would like included for the next meeting please do let us know.
